Accelerated & Early Acceptance

Save time, save money. Get a head start on your graduate studies. Milligan offers several opportunities to save time and/or money on completing both your bachelor’s and master’s degrees.

These programs are for Milligan undergraduates who make their intentions known to both their undergraduate advisor and the appropriate graduate program director, usually by their junior year. Faculty approvals are required and students must follow the prescribed process detailed for the individual program.

ACCELERATED BACHELOR’S/MASTER’S (ABM)

Earn both the bachelor’s and the master’s degrees in less time, which provides tuition savings and enables you to start your career sooner. These plans provide a streamlined path to a master’s degree immediately from the undergraduate program, reducing the time to get a master’s degree, often from two years to one year.

EARLY ACCEPTANCE PROGRAMS (EAP)

While it does not reduce degree time, students pursuing the EAP can apply early to a Milligan graduate program, secure their spot in the upcoming class, and lock-in the tuition rate for that year. Follow the process detailed on the individual program page.
